Female Quotient - Moving Beyond the “One Size Fits All” Mentality For Working Parents
Working parents are often thought of as one and the same, but the experiences of a parent of teenagers differ significantly from those of a newborn’s. The pandemic and shift to remote work exposed the true challenges of working parents, catalyzing companies to scrap their one-size-fits-all approach and help parents feel more supported, valued and included at work. In this discussion, we’ll explore how companies are rethinking their policies and benefits with the needs of every type of parent in mind.
MH WorkLife - Co-Design & Personalize The Employee Experience
The recession and market headwinds continue to bring on new challenges as organizations resort to layoffs and reduced budgets to focus on the bottom line of the company. However, companies aren’t the only ones going through things. Employees are penny-pinching as they grapple with the high cost of goods and services, caregiving, mortgages, and more. It’s time their benefits go the extra mile. And we can achieve this by learning more about what is working and what is not working, engaging in proper dialogue. This webinar will breakdown how employers and employees can co-design benefits that work not just for a few people in the organization, but for everyone.
Care.com - Embracing Equity At Work And At Home
Celebrate Women’s History Month and International Women’s Day with us! Join Reshma Saujani as she leads a conversation with Blessing Adesiyan, Sung Yeon Choimorrow, and Vivian Nava-Schellinger on what equity truly means for women — and particularly for women of color. Embracing Equity at Work and at Home will be a candid discussion about how equity has advanced (or not) for women, the residual impact of the pandemic on the struggle for equity, and the challenges and opportunities women face overall and within individual communities. Most importantly, we’ll discuss how we can learn from and support each other at work, at home and within our communities so women everywhere can rise.
MH WorkLife - Solving The Care Crisis For Equity In The Workplace
The latest U.S Department of Labor report found the cost of child care untenable for families across all care types, age groups, and county population sizes, stating that its holding back working mothers, and preventing too many people from achieving economic stability. Women are also three times as likely as men to retire early for caregiving reasons. Care is the backbone of our economy, enabling employees to productively show up at work, knowing that their children, parents, and loved ones are well taken care of. Without care, the workplace loses valuable, trained, and passionate women who are essential to the diversity of ideas and the business results we need for a thriving workplace. According to recent reports by BCG on the care economy, working caregivers—particularly women—left the workforce in record numbers during the pandemic. Now they're returning to work, and companies must deliver the support employees need to make the workplace inclusive and sustainable—or risk losing top talent again.
